Wednesday 14 October at 6 pm Carlo Pizzati presents «The tiger and the drone. The Indian continent between divinities and robots, revolutions and climatic crises "(Marsilio, pp. 448, euro 20); introduces Roberto Marcori. With its one billion and three hundred million inhabitants, India is the stone guest at the table of the world powers. Yet the imaginary around the Asian subcontinent seems to have remained in Gandhi's time: a land of Brahmins, peaceful in its poverty, divided into a millenary and inseparable casale system, a favorite destination for seeking oneself and one's spiritual roots, and at the same time eternal source of cheap labor. Carlo Pizzati, who has lived in Asia for over ten years, instead describes a different reality, split between unstoppable social and technological progress, an unprecedented climate crisis and the re-emergence of apparently outdated religious tensions. Pizzati, journalist and writer, has lived in Asia for more than ten years. He writes for the Republic and La Stampa. He has long been sent from New York, Mexico, Northern Ireland, Buenos Aires, Madrid and Chennai. Already author of "Report" with Milena Gabanelli on Rai 3, he hosted "Omnibus" on La7. Author of novels, essays and reportages published in various languages, Tecnosciamani was recently published in Italy. Between spirituality and technology: a journey to the edge of the world to treat chronic back pain (2015).
Thursday 15 October at 6 pm The poet Giusy Frisina presents the novel "It is not a case" by Jacopo Chiostri (Young Holden Editions); Gianna Consigli, communication expert, intervenes; readings by Amerigo Marchesini, actor. The author will be present. The volume tells of a young Roma woman who disappears after an attempted theft in the home of a well-known Florentine surgeon in possession of a painting that could be the motive for a murder that took place in the same days in Florence. Prospero Gennaro, head of the Florentine Mobile, investigates the story by dealing with strange coincidences and with a powerful criminal organization. The journalist Jacopo Chiostri, from Milan transplanted to Florence, the family's hometown, worked for La Nazione, Avvenire and Il Sole 24 Ore.
